[ - ] DH and I need a new computer; our Dell is 4 years old and full of viruses. My sister tells me Mac is the way to go. True? Pros and cons of going Mac v. PC? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

there is almost no risk of getting a virus on a mac because viruses are written for pcs. the only caveat is that if you run "parallels" (a program that allows you to run windows programs on a mac) you could get viruses. my dh converted me back to macs 4 yrs ago and now I can't stand my work computer!

[ - ] TTC #2...is it possible to have PG symptoms before I even miss my period? I swear since DH and I did it (on the cycle day I conceived DS), I've felt funky-- period-like cramping, bloat, teeny tiny bit of queasiness this AM, reflux after lunch today (which NEVER happens to me)...I'm not due for period until 06/13. Could this be something?! 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

TCOYF book talks about how some women do ovulate really, really early. The author provided an example of an orthodox Jewish woman who could not get pg b/c her faith mandated that she spend one week after her period in a separate bed from her dh. She ovulated so early that it was w/in the first week after menstruation. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, but it sounds like the harmless variety (i.e. not particularly sexual). I have a male coworker who I'm close with and he compliments my outfits, I say "thanks, honey" when he does me a favor, etc. but it's a purely brotherly/friendly kind of relationshjip. [ Reply | More ]
